    Student thesis: Master's ThesisMaster of Philosophy


    The president and executive branch of the U.S government has found that it is often subject to other domestic factors influencing its foreign policy in the 21st century and post - Cold War era. This is examined here by studying the case of NAFTA ratification and the proposal to expand NAFTA. While according to the U.S. Constitution, the Congress also has a key role in the foreign policy making arena, the examples from NAFTA and NAFTA ratification indeed illustrate that the foreign policy process had a lot more domestic influence in the period between 1993 -1998. This of course is desirable in a democratic country.
